Who wants a less annoying Mushu-less live adaptation of Mulan? If you answered “yes”, then you might enjoy what this upcoming 2020 Disney remake has in store.
Disney just dropped a new Mulan trailer, and it touches upon a few pivotal moments from the animated classic. For those not in the know, Mulan is about a Chinese heroine who poses as a man in order to join the Imperial Army so that she can take her elderly father’s place.
Also, there’s a witch, some form of magic, and phoenixes serving as Mulan’s guardian thankfully not voiced by this generation’s black comedian like Kevin Hart.
Oh, and for you old-school martial arts and 90s Hong Kong cinema fans, you’ll be pleased to know that:
- Donnie Yen plays Commander Tung, the guy who will lead the Chinese army against the Huns, probably as a mentor figure to Yifei Liu’s Mulan.
- Â Jet Li plays The Emperor.
- Jason Scott Lee will play the bad guy Bori Khan,
- Gong Li will play the antagonist witch Xian Lang. Something tells us she’ll be featured prominently in Singapore’s marketing for the film.
Mulan slashes into theaters 27th March 2020.
